Soften Wrinkles & Smooth Facial Lines
Neuromodulators work beneath the skin to temporarily restrict micro-muscle movement to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as to prevent new wrinkles from forming.
In as little as a 10-minute treatment (with minimal downtime afterward), we can deliver proven, subtle results.
What it Treats

- Frown Lines

How it Works
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, the reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. If you are experiencing this damage, getting a neuromodulator will be a great option for you!
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines.
The neuromodulator works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. They stop your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex, temporarily smoothing those lines.
What to Expect
Your injections will be performed in the comfort of our office. The entire appointment will last about 10 to 15 minutes, with the injections themselves taking less than a few minutes.
To begin, our provider will ask you to contract your face in various ways so that he/she can mark the treatment area. The medical provider will then place the injections carefully to smooth out your dynamic wrinkles while preserving your ability to move your face and express yourself naturally.
Afterward, you’ll still look like you — just a more refreshed, youthful version of yourself with fewer facial lines!

It usually takes about 5 to 10 days to see results following your injections. As a precautionary measure, we recommend waiting a full 14 days before you consider getting any repeat injections. To help you maintain your results long-term, your licensed injector will send you home with detailed post-care instructions!
The amount you need will depend on the number and size of the areas you’d like to have treated. During your consultation, we will assess your concerns and let you know how many units you’ll need to achieve the look you want. Usually, this amount will range from 20 to 70 units.
The effects usually last about three to four months. This depends on the individual patient and lifestyle factors such as diet, sun exposure, and effective skincare products. We will provide you with post-care instructions after your injections to help you maximize your results and enjoy the benefits of rejuvenated skin for as long as possible.
The needle used during an injection is very tiny. Therefore, the discomfort is minimal. We rarely find numbing to be necessary for this treatment. We will walk you through everything to expect from an injection during your brief initial consultation at our Chicago office!
